If you don’t have a relationship with an auto repair shop already, how do you know you won’t pay too much for work that isn’t necessary in the first place? While auto body repair can be a daunting process, a small fortune, and a time consuming task, it is also a necessary one.

How Do You Find a Reputable Shop?
When looking for an auto repair shop, there are a few things to consider. But our biggest piece of advice is: find the perfect repair shop before you need it! It’s an important decision and you don’t want to make it under pressure. For most people the consideration doesn’t come until you’re on the side of the road calling your insurance company. Well we’re here to outline how to find a quality auto repair shop and what to look for. We hope that you’ll consider us.
How Do You Know Who to Trust?
Finding a repair shop is like finding your primary care doctor. You interview, you test them but the real test comes when you truly need them. So, how do you know who to put your faith into? The best thing you can do is get referrals and check reviews. Ask your friends, your family and co-workers who they would recommend for auto repair. Then, take those recommendations and look them up. Five star reviews can be misleading. No major business gets five stars. And as compelling as their negative reviews can be, really take stock in the good ones. They can be just as telling as the bad reviews. Additionally, check the BBB. You can easily inquire about the nature and resolution of their customer complaints.
Chief Frame Machines
Most efficient pulling system in the world. Both of our benches can easily handle pulling from 360 degrees and simultaneously pull in multiple directions.
The Genesis Velocity is the world’s most accurate frame measuring system. It provides full-color one page reports on the exact condition of your vehicle’s frame before, during, and after repairs have been made.
Do You Work with Insurance Companies?
We work with all insurance companies, and in fact, we are a direct repair facility for many insurance companies. So, let us know who is your provider.
If My Vehicle’s Frame has Damage, is it a Total Loss?
Frame damage is no longer the nail in the coffin for a damaged vehicle. Modern equipment, techniques, and advanced expertise of the technician allow for even severely-damaged frames to be repaired. Of course, the less damage, the better the likelihood of saving the car.
Can Car Struction Match my Paint Color Exactly?
Absolutely. In addition to working with Porsche and Mercedes-Benz closely to keep paint formulations on hand, our paint technicians can flawlessly blend the new paint into the existing paint of your vehicle.
How Many Estimates Do I Need?
We work with your insurance company to establish an estimate, as do many collision repair centers. Getting multiple estimates is generally not advantageous, as they will all be nearly identical.
Do I Need an Appointment?
We do suggest scheduling an appointment through our easy-to-use form ahead of time. If you find yourself short on time, then please give us a call and we will fit you in as soon as we can.
What Happens if Additional Damage is Found After the Estimate?
Unfortunately, the first observation and inspection doesn’t always discover deep-down damages. During the course of repair, we may find further issues that need to be addressed. In this case, we will contact the insurance company for authorization to pay for any supplemental damages. Then we will notify you before we take further action.
